Welcome address of the Mayor of Moscow

To the organizers, participants and guests of
the Tenth International Military Music Festival “Spasskaya Tower”

Dear friends,
I cordially welcome you to the Tenth International Military Music Festival “Spasskaya Tower”, which will be held in Moscow.
Over the years since its inception, the Festival has won the hearts and minds of Muscovites and has evolved into one of the largest military music parades in the world.

At the foot of the Kremlin walls, music of friendship and kindness brilliantly will be performed by leading bands from a number of different countries. Spectators will also be able to admire the parade marches and dance shows, brilliant lighting effects and, last but not least, a captivating display of weapon mastery.

Given that 2017 is a jubilee year for Moscow, the city’s residents and guests of the capital will be served up a wide variety of new and spectacular impressions. Military musicians will be playing unforgettable concerts on Red Square, demonstrating their virtuosity in the city’s streets and parks, thus building on the country’s famed tradition of open-air brass band performances.

Thus, I would also like to extend my gratitude to the organizers and participants of “Spasskaya Tower — 2017” for the opportunity to enjoy what will undoubtedly be an amazing performance.
My dear friends, let me close by wishing you prosperity, a good mood and all the best!

Mayor of Moscow
Sergey Sobyanin
